Dentists and Hygienist have a language all their own. This guide breaks down the professional terminology into everyday language.
A Nesbit denture is a type of denture used to replace missing teeth in the back of the mouth. Nesbit dentures use metal clasps to attach to nearby healthy natural teeth. Many dentists do not recommend Nesbit dentures because they put a lot of pressure on the surrounding teeth and are more likely than other types of dentures to become dislodged.
